    Well if you read this thread then you'd know that rogue made a point of how it was republicans that supported the CRA and the VRA, but what he failed to mention was that southern republicans, all, every last one of them, voted against the democrat sponsered legislation. And that was the final straw for the white supremacist democrat party in the south. They were still white supremacists, but they began voting republican.

    And, an aside, abandonment of the Democratic Party continues based on their giant swerve to the left.

    BET Founder: Democratic Party Has Moved "Too Far To The Left"

    BET.jpg

    CNBC: America’s political establishment is riven with partisanship that has become “very wicked and very mean,” said entrepreneur and media mogul Robert Johnson, who added that the Democratic Party has become too liberal for his liking.

    “The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left,” Johnson, the founder of cable network BET and RLJ Companies business network, told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble Tuesday.

    BET FOUNDER ROBERT JOHNSON: I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that's benefiting a large number of Americans. Overall, if you look at the U.S. economy, if you look at the number of people who are no longer looking for jobs but are now seeing the opportunity for job growth, you’ve got to give the president an A+ for that.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    He didn't mention it because it wasn't especially relevant; there were very few Republicans in the South at that time.

    This makes no sense, Jim. Are you even paying attention to Teallaura's posts in this thread? The white supremacist Democrats became Dixiecrats for a time, then went back to being Democrat. It wasn't until the next generation that the South started swinging Republican.

    Duh, no kidding Sherlock. There were only 11 republicans from the south in all of congress, 126 democrats. The CR legislation was democrat sponsered and nearly all the democrats voted agin! They went strickly against the democratic agenda and began to vote more and more republican from thence forth. Not that the republican party didn't take advantage of the white supremacist split in the democrat south, they capitalized on it.

    You asked, I answered. If you didn't want to know, why did you ask?

    No, it was the right to secede from the Union - which they had already done. That was spurred by the election of Lincoln because of the probable imbalance of slave/free states if new states were to be allowed in indiscriminately. Yeah, that is because of slavery - but that itself was because of the economic devastation the South anticipated - and later experienced. So ultimately, it's economics.

    No, they didn't - the South remained solidly DEMOCRAT until the 1980's and did not become solidly REPUBLICAN until the 1990's - Civil Rights did NOT cause that shift. Leftist leanings in the Democratic Party itself - largely beginning in the 1980's - did that.

    You do remember saying that particular statistics wasn't relevant to the argument - and I actually agreed - don't you?

    0 out of 11 - you seem to miss the important part about how few Republicans were elected in the South at the time.

    Yes, but you answered my question after reading it out of context which ended up being an answer to a differnt question.

    Right, but they, ie the republicans, both office holders and the constituency, surged throughout the south shortly thereafter. And that took place long before the 80's and 90's.
